10 Reasons to Try Water Exercise

  1. Joint Protection. Thanks to the buoyant properties of the water, body "weight" can be reduced as much as 75-90%, cushioning joints and protecting them from the shock of impact.
  2. Resistance. Water provides more resistance than air, burning more fat than on land and helping muscles become balanced and toned. 
  3. Calorie Burn. Water aerobics can burn anywhere from 400-600 calories an hour. 
  4. Cooling Effect. Water cools the body to help prevent over-heating. 
  5. Health. It can strengthen the heart and lungs, improve endurance, reduce blood pressure and help balance blood sugar. 
  6. Joint Pain. It can help relieve the pain of joint issues, increase flexibility and keep you mobile. 
  7. Relaxation. It can help relieve stress and anxiety. 
  8. Feel self-conscious or uncoordinated when exercising? No one can really see what you are doing underwater! 
  9. When you're having a bad hair day, we won't even notice! 
  10. You get a free hot shower! (Not to mention a 20-44% discount if you purchase a Punch Card or even more with an Annual Pass!)
  11.  Bonus reason! It's fun and a great way to make new friends! Hope to see you soon!
